Zolak and Bertrand take a deeper look at the quarterback situation in the NFL.
First baseman Hanley Ramirez had the game of his Red Sox career on Wednesday night, hitting three home runs and driving in 6 runs to help his team ward off a bad debut from Drew Pomeranz and earn an 11-7 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Zo and Beetle give Hanley his due credit for pushing the Sox back into first place for the first time in seven weeks.
Newly acquired Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz could have changed his last name to "PomeRUNz" last night as he was roughed up in his Boston debut.
